Commissions vary by category and range from 40-80% of eBay’s revenue earned on each transaction. We also pay a 100% bonus if the customer you bring to our site hasn’t purchased from eBay within the last 12 months. If you are comparing programs, those commissions sound pretty high, that’s because we pay a percent of the revenue we earn on each transaction, which is different than the sale price. 

Let’s walk through what that would look like on the sale of a laptop.

Example: Asus Laptop (Electronics=50%) Existing Buyer New or Reactivated*
Sales $500.00 $500.00
eBay Revenue $45.00** $45.00**
Earnings $24.75 $74.25
Earnings as % of Sale 4.9% 14.8%

*New or Reactivated buyers have either Never puchased on eBay or have not purchased in the past 12 Months.
**eBay's revenue may vary based on vertical, product or brand, and is only an estimate.
